Schwartz: "We're measuring Jahvid [Best] in weeks, not days" - [Full Article]

Lions RB Jahvid Best does not appear to be close to returning to action.

"The only thing I will say is we're measuring Jahvid in weeks, not days," Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. "He's not day-to-day A lot of these guys are day-to-day We're measuring his progress in weeks. He's doing very well. He's working very, very hard. He's in supreme condition, and I know this, when he's cleared, he's going to be tough to handle because he'll be ready."

Fantasy Impact: 

We are staying away from Best, and actually believe that Kevin Smith will finish with the most fantasy points this season. Smith is not the most durable player either, but he did score seven touchdowns in the final seven games of 2011. Mikel Leshoure will also be a factor.
